California Harvest Heats Up

With rain on the horizon, winemakers in Napa and Sonoma are starting to bring in more grapes

Posted: September 23, 2014  By James Laube

With rain in the forecast for Northern California in the next few days, the harvest will accelerate in many quarters. No one expects the rain to cause much concern. But grapes close to full ripeness and susceptible to rain, such as Pinot Noir, will be best harvested sooner than later. No one wants to slosh through another year like 2011.

Grange’s Enduring Greatness

Consistency has been a strength for both the legendary Australian Shiraz and its label

Posted: September 12, 2014  By James Laube

Whenever I come face to face with a bottle of Penfolds Grange, as I did on two nights this week, several thoughts quickly come to mind.

I'm reminded of how fantastic this wine remains, and why it is still revered as one of Australia's greatest wines. I think too of its creator, Max Schubert, and the time we met in the 1980s, one of those special moments where I felt as if I were standing next to a legend, an original.

Napa Cabernet by the (Case) Numbers

The 2012 vintage affirms that Cabernet is king in California

Posted: August 20, 2014  By James Laube

In the past few weeks, much of my attention has been directed toward reviewing Napa Valley Cabernets from the 2011 vintage. 2011 was tough across the board in California. But interspersed with the Napa 2011s were a sprinkling of 2012s and the hint of better days ahead. Not only were many of the 2012s richer and riper, better made and better balanced, I came across some rather staggering figures, evidence of Cabernet's importance to Napa wineries' bottom lines and California's image as a whole.
